DraftyAiresMum: That is a case of good temperment, willingness and loats of heart and desire but lacks the conformation for the ong term. Its sad that ppl either refuse to educate themselves or ignore about teaching/training a horse (not jumping them so young) and not taking consideration of thier horse and keeping him within his physical level for the long haul. Esp with faults that can be detrimental when the horse is mature let alone stressing them when they are young.
